A single Six Bar Angel should have an enclosure of at least 100 gallons. The temperature should remain between 75 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit (24 to 26 degrees Celsius). The pH level should remain at 8.3 or 8.4. The specific gravity should be between 1.020 and 1.025. The lower end of this range, below 1.023, would be appropriate for a single fish. However, because invertebrates require higher salinities, a Six Bar Angel kept with these animals should have a specific gravity between 1.023 and 1.025. Six Bar Angels should be allowed plenty of hiding places. They normally do not get along well with other Angels of the same species, or with similar species. In a reef aquarium, Six Bar Angels may nibble on hard and soft corals or tridacnid clams. The most important aspect of a Six Bar Angel's diet is variety. Often, people offer mysid shrimp, various seaweeds, squid, shellfish, sponges, and numerous protein items. Many Six Bar Angels will also graze on algal growth in their enclosures. In order to ensure an easier transition into a captive environment, it is best to acquire a Six Bar Angel that is not too large. Usually a young, though not tiny, specimen has the best chances of adapting to your aquarium. Diet:
The diet of the Six Bar Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysid or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items. It should be fed at least three times a day. Breeding and Propagation:
The Six Bar Angelfish are hermaphroditic, difficult to breed, and indistinguishable in color from male to female.
